This is an important piece regarding the history of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo by Armando Rendon who is the editor of Somos en escrito The Latino Literary Online Magazine.
I really respect and appreciate Armando who develops the argument herein that
the harm inflicted upon Chicanos or Mexican Americans historically does rise to the international level with implications for human rights violations and all that is implied therein. Great read!
